doing dana 60 swap and swapping rear axle

so I'm wanting to do the Dana 60 swap I have a front axle that I can buy for $800 that is 3:55 gears. My truck is currently 4:10 if I find an axle for the back off a f-250 or a f-350that is 3:55 gears is it just a un bolt the old one and slide in the new rear axle. I do want the 3:55. All I do is drive on the highway.. any help is much appreciated

Randy's ring and pinion has gears that would be wAy cheaper than a whole axle if your interested in just rehearing the rear. I'm rehearing my d60 for my f250 now got gears for 220

you should be able to find a rear end for less than a set of gears. i sold mine for $175, it was 3.55s and needed a diff cover, i put a hole it in unloading it. rearing normally costs around $600 an axle here, maybe more or less depending on your labor rates

the install kit is more then the gears, and I think gears have doubled in price recently to $400
regearing is a better way to go IMO as these rearends have a pinion bearing crush sleeve that goes bad and should be replaced with a crush sleeve eliminator

I just ordered USA standard gears for my d60 steer axle 221 went with the better Yukon overhaul kit for 272 but could get a kit for 170. My gears showed up on ups 3
Business days later. Randy's told me that the USA gears maybe noisy compared to Yukon gears but in a front axle that's not turning them all time and in a diesel it won't bother me
